News website Famitsu confirmed on Thursday that game director Tetsuya Nomura announced at the "Kingdom Hearts Orchestra -World of Tres-" concert in Tokyo on April 27 that Square Enix is developing paid DLC for the Kingdom Hearts III game.

Nomura stated that the DLC is temporarily titled "Kingdom Hearts III ReMIND." The DLC will have a new scenario temporarily titled "ReMIND," a "limit cut episode" and boss fight, and a secret episode and boss fight. The DLC in Japan will also offer the option to switch to the English dub of the game. Nomura did not reveal a release period or price for the paid DLC, but stated that the DLC will be available as a set.

Nomura also announced that there will be a free DLC that will include a new keyblade and form change that will release around the same time as the paid DLC.

Nomura added that he will reveal more information "around the time it rains a lot." Japan's rainy season on the main Honshu island starts around early June and ends in mid-July.

Square Enix released a patch for the game on April 24 that added a Critical Mode, a new game plus option, a higher photo gallery limit, and more.

Square Enix released the game on January 25 in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on January 29 in the West. The game had shipped more than 5 million copies worldwide, including digital sales, as of February 5, and is the fastest-selling title in the history of the franchise.

Shiro Amano is drawing a manga based on the game, and he launched the manga on April 29.
